Medieval gambeson Rehoboam is a type of armor padding inspired by 14th century French sources. This gambeson is a perfect choice for anyone looking for aketon for medieval reenactment.

Rehoboam armor padding is sewn using high quality fabrics. Its outer layer is linen and it also has a linen lining.
This model of armor padding has a few types of stitchings. Curved stitchings are placed on the upper part of the chest section. From the waist below, they are horizontal. Upper part of sleeves has horizontal stitchings, and forearms - vertical ones.

Our armor padding has a cotton-polyester stuffing with two levels of thickness. There are two layers of nonwoven on the chest (Y2). The rest of the torso is protected by one layer (Y1).

The upgrading of SPES gambesons design

Currently, we are working on implementing to our assortment the upgraded versions of our well-known gambesons. Changes include:
- improving the functionality and mobility of our aketons
- layers’ thickness (check the chart with levels of amortization)
- directions and shape of stitchings
- minor changes in cut (for better fitting)
- and most of all, matching the gambesons to our six-levels size set: XS-XXL (NOTE: you can still order a custom-sized gambeson)

Therefore, you can be sure that upgraded SPES gambesons are even better suited to your needs. And if you have any questions about mentioned changes in any model, contact us - we will dispel the doubts!

To make each gambeson stand out even more, we gave them unique names. From now, TYPE 3 is named Medieval gambeson Rehoboam.
